Hi folks. The old website showed a listing of the last ~5 posts to the forums right on the home page. That went away in the new website. Please consider putting that functionality back in place. With it, I could very quickly and easily see if there was a discussion that I'd like to be part of without having to go to the forums webpage and browse. Since it isn't there, I don't often go to the forums. Improving participation in the forums with this simple functionality would be a really good thing for the AAVSO.
I agree with you! I complained when they originally removed the most recent posts listing form the home page... obviously they did not restore this feature... I sure miss it and glad you have brought it back up! Maybe if enough folks complain they might listen.
It’s had another outcome for me. Because the Forum posts are no longer available on the homepage, I keep the “Recent Forum posts” page open on my iPad permanently. Simply refreshing the page brings up the latest posts. The consequence is I rarely go to the homepage these days…..
